SOON TO BE AN AMAZON PRIME TV SERIES STARRING SAM CLAFLIN, RILEY KEOUGH AND CAMILA MORRONE

THE SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

From the author of THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO and the bestselling MALIBU RISING

'I LOVE it . . . I can't remember the last time I read a book that was so fun' DOLLY ALDERTON

Everybody knows Daisy Jones and the Six.

From the moment Daisy walked barefoot on to the stage at the Whisky, she and the band were a sensation.

Their sound defined an era. Their albums were on every turntable. They played sold-out arenas from coast to coast.

Then, on 12 July 1979, it all came crashing down.

They were lovers, friends, brothers. But they were also rivals.

This is the story of their legendary rise and irrevocable fall. A story of ambition, desire, heartbreak and music.

Everyone was there. Everyone remembers it differently. Nobody knew why they split. Until now...

'The verdict: Daisy Jones steals the limelight' STYLIST

'New obsession, incoming' TELEGRAPH

'I didn't want this book to end' FEARNE COTTON

'Utterly believable . . . fantastically enjoyable' THE TIMES

'Pitch perfect' SUNDAY TIMES

'Reads like an addictive Netflix documentary meets A Star Is Born - despite being utterly fictional. It's also a call-to-arms that when you find your niche, don't doubt, embrace it' EMERALD STREET

'Well observed, sensitively told . . . a great read' BBC

'A tremendously engaging, and completely believable tale of rock and roll excess... inventive, persuasive and completely satisfying' DYLAN JONES

'I spent a lost weekend in this book. Daisy Jones is an instant icon' ERIN KELLY

'DAISY JONES & THE SIX is a transporting novel - at once a love story, a glimpse into the combustible inner workings of a rock-and-roll band, and a pitch-perfect recreation of the music scene of the Fleetwood Mac era. You'll never want it to end' CECILIA AHERN

'Once in a blue moon you get to discover a book you end up pressing upon many other people to read. Taylor Jenkins Reid has got every nuance, every detail exact and right. I loved every word' PAUL REES

'So brilliantly written I thought all the characters were real . . . I couldn't put it down' EDITH BOWMAN

'Explosive . . . a gorgeous novel and a ravishing read' SUNDAY EXPRESS

'Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll? You bet, but it's Daisy's refusal to become a mere muse that powers this buzzy music-industry romance' MAIL ON SUNDAY

'The characters leap off the page, seducing you with their dramas, and making you wish the band was real' HEAT

'The heady haze of the 70s music scene, and a perfectly flawed Daisy, combine to create a fresh, rock n roll read. I loved it' ALI LAND, author of Good Me Bad Me

Review Text

It’s mostly set in the Seventies, an era that Jenkins Reid conjures like a Tarantino film. The counterculture, the drugs, the parties, the promiscuity, the terrible relationships. It’s also about how some people can be stars, and others can’t, and the addictive lure of fame. Jenkins Reid has arranged this as an oral history, so we see the story of the band’s rise to excess from many points of view. You keep wondering: how far can this go? How crazy will things get? This is the Seventies. Pretty crazy. Hugely readable.

Daisy and the band captured my heart, and they're sure to capture yours too. * Reese Witherspoon * Fascinating . . . you can't wait to find out what happens next . . . Everyone should read this. * Claudia Winkleman, RADIO 2 * It's as if a woman wrestled the narrative from Almost Famous, drenched it in sunshine, sex and tequila, then left it for us to read on a rainy Sunday. * Grazia * The heady haze of the 70s music scene, and a perfectly flawed Daisy, combine to create a fresh, rock n roll read. I loved it. * Ali Land * Taylor Jenkins Reid is a stunning writer whose characters are unforgettable and whose stories are deeply emotional. Her new book is her most gripping yet. * Emily Giffin * Utterly believable . . . fabulously entertaining. * The Times * I spent a lost weekend in this book. Daisy Jones is an instant icon. * Erin Kelly * A tremendously engaging, and completely believable tale of rock and roll excess, one made all the more enjoyable by being written as an oral biography.

A zeitgeist book for 2019, read it before the series becomes the next must-see. * Stylist * DAISY JONES & THE SIX is a transporting novel - at once a love story, a glimpse into the combustible inner workings of a rock-and-roll band, and a pitch-perfect recreation of the music scene of the Fleetwood Mac era.

The counterculture, the drugs, the parties, the promiscuity, the terrible relationships. It's also about how some people can be stars, and others can't, and the addictive lure of fame.

This is the Seventies. Pretty crazy. Hugely readable. * Evening Standard * I completely forgot that Daisy Jones and The Six was a fictional book and not a real story. The cast of characters with different narrators portraying them made it feel so real. One of my favourite audiobooks of all time. * Pop Sugar * Chances are that by the end of the year you'll want to track down Daisy's music and play it, even though the fabulous 1970s songbird never existed. * Writing Magazine * A compelling read that opens the lid on the music industry's dark side * Sunday Times Magazine *
